     :400: and safe riding  :305: Riko. Thanks for the posting, fair and accurate assessment of the CT for me. Reflects our forum postings as well, re; heated grips, suspension, weight etc.

    I'll intoduce myself in the proper section, but in short, I'm looking for a powerful bike to do some long distance travel on and that I can use for my weekend rides if the weahter is sh#tty (Belgium...) and that provides better protection against the elements than my current bike does, a Honda CB1100EX.

    I've already tested a DVT Multi, rented it for a day and filmed my day, I cannot upload the videos since the speedo would have to be blurred :)
    There are a few pics I made that day, here are 2:


    So all I can do is say, it was a freaking blast!!

    Sound, weight, comfort, speed, accel, wind protection, looks...it had it all, except, ther were 2 major concerns: reliability and cost :)

    So the DCT CT is on my list to restride and a 2013-2014 Multistrada.

    The figures of the CT are actually impressive too, at the rear wheel: 108 HP @ 7900rpm and 108 NM @ 5400rpm
    Of all ADV bikes, the torque stats are actually one of the most impressive..

    Well here is me on my pride and joy, a bike wich I will not sell for anything else, I'd feel sorry if I do I know that for sure



    I also have a small 50cc Zoomer/Ruckus for my short 'commute' to work :)
